Research: the sun protects against Covid-19 – health news

According to research conducted in the UK, it has been stated that the sun’s rays can play an important role in the fight against Covid-19.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh compared the levels of UV rays in that area with casualties from Covid-19.

In the study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, it was reported that ultra violet rays coming from the sun revealed skin chemicals that prevent the spread of Covid-19.


In the study conducted by examining the 2 thousand 474 regions of the USA last year, it was found that people living in regions that receive the highest level of UVA rays, which make up 95 percent of ultra violet rays, were found to have a lower risk of death when comparing Covid-induced casualties with ultra violet rays.

In the report of the study, it was determined that the risk of dying from Covid was 32 percent lower in the districts with the highest daily UVA rays, while the Daily Mail’s report emphasized that the scientists’ statement instilled hope for the summer months.
